The bereavement committee, with Darlene Simpson, Carol Cranford, and Alice Jones serving as chairs, prepares meals for Grace family members when they have lost a loved one.

Meals are sometimes served prior to funerals, sometimes afterwards, and sometimes families take them home. Meals are sometimes are complete with meats/vegetables/salads/desserts and sometimes families prefer “finger foods” in a reception – type atmosphere.

The church usually provides fried chicken, with side items/beverages/desserts provided by bereavement committee volunteers. Set – up for meals, serving, and clean – up are also provided by volunteers.

Sadly, this is a necessary committee for Grace, but we are usually blessed by not having too much work during the year. If you would like to have your name added to this committee, please send an e – mail to Carol Cranford or contact the church office.
